Chalo Nitka Bass Tournament Saturday

MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- Moore Haven will host the 53rd annual Chalo Nitka Big Bass Tournament Saturday, February 23rd at Alvin Ward Park.

Purported to be the oldest fishing tournament in Florida, according to Florida Sportsman magazine, the Chalo Nitka Big Bass Tournament harkens back to the days before the “catch and release” rules were established, when strings of bass an armlength’s across were displayed during the Chalo Nitka Festival itself and live bait was not a dirty word among professional anglers.

Entry fee is $25 per person. There is no age limit, anyone can fish, but each person on the boat must pay the entry fee.

All of the money received for this event is used for event prize payback, polygraph testing and a portion of all entry fees will be donated to help fund projects for the youth of Glades County.

Entry forms for the Chalo Nitka Big Bass Tournament are available at the EDC Office, (the old Chamber building) 998 US HWY 27, Moore Haven. For more information, contact the EDC at (863) 946-0300.
